Provost’s Perspective: Rising to the challenge of sustainability

Sustainable development is one of the major global themes of the 21st century and one that challenges our economic model of growth and development, the way in which our society functions and our custodianship of the Earth’s resources.

Provost’s Perspective: Working with you to improve the UCL student experience

Congratulations on finishing your exams, I hope they went well. For me, summer is a time for reflection on the academic year that has almost passed and the one that is about to start. I’m intending to dedicate a good proportion of mine to my highest priority: improving the student experience at UCL.

Provost's Perspective: Transforming UCL - from the New Student Centre to UCL East

As the third term ramps up here at UCL, the vast majority of you are focused on the examinations and dissertations that are taking up most of your time. No doubt, while you visit the library and study spaces around campus, you will have passed by many of the improvement works that we are currently carrying out as part of the Transforming UCL programme.

Provost's Perspective: Improving the welcome we give new students

During the autumn term, more than 300 of you – both undergraduates and postgraduates - gave your views on what a UCL education should look like in five years’ time. I’m very grateful you did. Your comments have helped shape our just-published Education Strategy which sets out how we intend to improve the education we offer by 2018, and again by 2021.
